Hallam Hope signs three and a half year deal for the Shakers
Chairman Stewart Day and manager David Flitcroft are delighted to announce the capture of Hallam Hope on a three and a half year deal after the club agreed an undisclosed transfer fee with Premiership side Everton. All necessary paperwork for the transfer of Hallam's registration will be submitted as soon as the transfer window opens on 4 January.
Hallam is of course no stranger to the JD Stadium, having spent a very successful loan spell with Bury last season - scoring six goals in eight appearances, including a hat trick against Portsmouth.
Although he joined Sheffield Wednesday earlier this season, David Flitcroft kept in close contact with his progress and with Everton and finally brought him back to the JD on 10 November on loan. Since returning, Hallam has made a further seven appearances though for the Shakers.
Hallam has signed a three and a half year deal with the club and is extremely keen to get back amongst the goals as soon as possible.
Speaking ahead of this morning's training session, manager David Flitcroft said: "The signing of Hallam is a signing for the present and the future for us, he represents the new ambition of our football club.
He adds power, speed, strength and potency to our squad. His potential is frightening and I love working with him. As a player and a person, he wants to improve on a daily basis."
We'd also like to take this opportunity to wish all out supporters a happy and prosperous New Year and are sure that this signing will start the New Year off with a bang...
